Currently, the only operating systems fully supporting TV capture with these cards are Microsoft Windows XP,98, and Software installation is the standard couple-of-clicks-and-reboot affair. The aow control is — dare I say it — wicked cool. Outside of attaching the video and audio cables from your stereo, Atii, TV and so on to the All-in-Wonder Radeon DV’s breakout cable, physical installation is the same as it is with any other graphics card.

Regular,  MB, DV . It also costs significantly more than the functionally similar save for its different 88500dv All-in-Wonder Radeonwhich is based on the regular Radeon graphics card. The card sports only a single DVI output, but you can drive a secondary display via the composite or S-Video outputs.

I think, given the other included software, this is a fitting games selection. However, time-shifted and 8500vv performance is excellent, and you 8500dg set the video quality anywhere from modem-friendly x, 30KB-per-second video to full x, 8MB-per-second MPEG Discussion threads can be closed at any time at our discretion. The one you’ve been waiting for.
XT,  Pro,  Regular . Next up, and this is the big feature, is the TV tuner.

I usually complain that video cards don’t come with any packaged games. The 2nd Firewire port is located on this dongle. While the vast majority of TV tuners are analog based meaning they use analog components such as resistors, inductors and capacitors to create band-pass filters that allow certain frequencies to pass through thus “tuning” to those channels, the AIW Radeon DV implements virtually all of those analog components into a single piece of silicon.
For those 8500ev you with console game systems that want to keep things centralized, you can hook your Dreamcast or GameCube or whichever up and let your monitor double as a TV. Performance is but a small part of the Radeon All-in-Wonder DV picture; it really shines in its extras and software.

Anti-Aliasing proves to be a pretty big performance hit on thehowever, due likely to the lower clock speeds of xti memory.
The advantage is pretty obvious in terms of saved space, and it also makes channel switching a lot faster. The last one I can recall having a software bundle being worthwhile was the Elsa Gladiacwhich came with aiq GF3 enhanced version of Giants. I can change channels from a different floor, if I so desired.
So, I figured running it against a regular GeForce 3 would be sufficient to get an idea of how the card performs in games, not expecting any spectacular results because of the lower speeds, the memory clock in particular.
Here the GeForce 3 soundly beats the DV by some pretty large amounts. Very useful for those of us that don’t like to hunt for the TV Guide. But if its high price makes you wonder about alternatives, the ATI Radeon and the Nvidia Personal Cinema Series are cheaper and a bit slower, but they offer much the same TV and video capabilities.
It costs twice as much as its predecessor, the All-in-Wonder Radeon.
